Adele’s New Song Is Every Bit As Good As You Want It to Be


We were teased yesterday on Twitter and Facebook by an ad for an exclusive performance on 60 Minutes Australia. Now you can watch the full performance of Adele’s new new song, “When We Were Young,” the follow up to her first single in three years, “Hello”, and the second song from the forthcoming album “25.” The film clip is directed by Paul Dugdale, and shot at The Church Studios, the legendary north London recording spot.

For fans of Adele, the main feeling is relief—that it’s a real comeback. Here’s the conversation I had with Mother Jones creative director Ivylise Simones when she texted me urgently this morning with the link:

Here’s that teaser for the 60 Minutes interview:

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
